In the Name of Jesus: Reflections on Christian Leadership
About an hour ago I began reading Henri Nouwen's little book In the Name of Jesus: Reflections on Christian Leadership. I just finished it. Nouwen uses the temptation of Christ in the desert to address the temptations of leadership (relevance, popularity, and power), shares reflections on the story of Peter's call to be a shepherd, and discusses the disciplines necessary for Christ-centered, servant leadership. It was absolutely fantastic! I highly recommend it! He has quickly become one of my favorite authors!
